Jenson Button believes points could be on the cards in Sunday's Monaco Grand Prix after he completed his first day of on-track duties following his return to Formula One action.

The 37-year-old Briton is back in a grand prix car - just five races after he stepped down from the sport - as a replacement for Fernando Alonso, who is taking part in the Indianapolis 500.

Button eased his way back into action on Thursday before finishing 14th in the order during opening practice, and then 12th following the conclusion of the day's second running.

"I definitely stepped away at the right time and I haven't missed driving a Formula One car. But today I really enjoyed it, more than I have for a couple of years to be fair," he said.
